Jobs-generating Territory film to premiere at Berlin International Film Festival

The Top End will be on display to global audiences at next month’s prestigious Berlin International Film Festival, with local production High Ground selected to host its world premiere at a red carpet gala screening.

High Ground, directed by Stephen Maxwell Johnson, was filmed in Kakadu National Park and Western Arnhem Land, and stars the legendary Jack Thompson alongside internationally-acclaimed actor, Simon Baker and newcomer, Jacob Junior Nayinggul.

The Northern Territory Government supported this project as part of our jobs-generating investment in the screen industry. High Ground attracted $2.1 million of external investment and generated $2.5 million of production expenditure.
